Fourth quarter revenues were $1,3 billion, up 1% compared with the prior year period. Full reconciliations of GAAP results to non-GAAP measures for all reported periods appear in the tables to this press release.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $164 million compared with $140 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) increased 26% to $1,53 per diluted share compared with $1,21 for the prior year period. Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2016, which excludes charges and gains in both 2016 and 2015 as detailed in Table 7 of this press release, was $146 million compared with $113 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. Adjusted diluted EPS increased 38% to $1,35 from $0,98 per diluted share in the prior year period. Adjusted net income and EPS benefited from earnings growth across all of our businesses. EPS also benefited from the Company's share repurchase program.

Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes charges and gains in 2016 and charges in 2015 as detailed in Table 8 of this press release, was $318 million, compared with $273 million in the prior year period, an increase of 16%.

"In 2016, we delivered earnings growth and free cash flow that were both in line with our targets despite headwinds from a higher provision for loan losses and foreign exchange rates," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO. "We achieved these results through consistent execution, careful expense management, and continued disciplined capital allocation."

RESULTADOS OPERATIVOS DEL EJERCICIO COMPLETO 2016
Revenues for full year 2016 were $5,6 billion, an increase of 1% over the prior year.

Net income for full year 2016 was $611 million compared with $612 million for full year 2015. Diluted EPS increased 8% to $5,53 from $5,14 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted net income for full year 2016, which excludes charges and gains in both 2016 and 2015 as detailed in Table 7 of this press release, was $636 million compared with $608 million for full year 2015. Adjusted diluted EPS increased 13% to $5,75 from $5,11 in the prior year period. Adjusted net income and EPS benefited from earnings growth across all of our businesses. EPS also benefited from the Company's share repurchase program.

Full year 2016 EBITDA was $1.331 million, compared with $1.266 million in the prior year, an increase of 5%. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes charges and gains in 2016 and charges in 2015 as detailed in Table 8 of this press release, was $1.373 million. This compares with $1.297 million in the prior year, an increase of 6%. On a currency-neutral basis and excluding acquisitions, adjusted EBITDA increased 7%.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, net cash provided by operating activities was $973 million, compared with $991 million in the prior year period. The decrease reflects unfavorable currency movements of $48 million, including a $24 million devaluation of the Venezuelan bolivar in the first quarter of 2016.

Free cash flow was $782 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016, compared with $769 million for the same period in 2015, reflecting lower capital expenditures that were partially offset by the unfavorable currency movements referenced above. La compañía define el flujo libre de efectivo como el efectivo neto producido por actividades operativas menos los gastos de capital.

 

FOURTH QUARTER 2016 BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS

Hotel Group
Revenues were $316 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared with $314 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Revenues reflected higher franchise fees and growth in the Company's Wyndham Rewards credit card program, partially offset by lower reimbursable property management revenues.

EBITDA was $99 million in the fourth quarter compared with $94 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA grew 6% to $99 million. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, adjusted EBITDA increased 8%. This reflects the higher franchise fees and growth in the Company's Wyndham Rewards credit card program.

Fourth quarter domestic same store RevPAR increased 2,9%. Excluding oil markets, domestic same store RevPAR increased 3,7%. In constant currency, total systemwide same store RevPAR increased 2,7% compared with the fourth quarter of 2015, which reflects softness in domestic and Canadian oil markets.

Vacation rental revenues were $151 million compared with $144 million in the prior year quarter. In constant currency and excluding the impact of acquisitions, vacation rental revenues were up 5%, reflecting a 5,3% increase in transaction volume, which benefited from enhanced yield management as well as capacity increases across our Denmark-based Novasol brand and our U.K. cottage and parks brands.

Vacation Ownership
Revenues were $705 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared with $706 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. 

Gross VOI sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 were flat, impacted by sales office closures from a restructuring and Hurricane Matthew. The number of new owners added during the quarter was up 8% from the prior year quarter. Volume per guest was up 0,4% and tour flow declined 1,5%, reflecting the closure of sales sites as noted above.

EBITDA was $182 million in the fourth quarter compared with $174 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $191 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 10% compared with the prior year quarter, due to lower costs.
